Long story short…after complaining of being charged $250 to move a few tables to accomodate our reception) and yes, I offered to do it myself, the wedding venue said they would refund the deposit and find another venue…good luck. So it looks as though we may be changing wedding venues 42 days from the wedding and invitations to all 125 guests have been mailed and received. How do I go about notifying my guests of change of venue? Postcard? if so, how do I word it? HELP…..

I’m sorry that happened! Since it’s pretty close to the wedding date, it might be best if you call your guests. Encourage them to spread the word to other family members about the new location, just in case people don’t pick up or receive the message. Postcards would be helpful, too. You don’t have to explain the situation on the card; just note that the venue has been changed and print the new info. Good luck with everything!

I think actual phone calls would be best! and maybe a mass email as a reminder!

A postcard sent to all the invitation recipients. At least all the ones that rsvpd yes.

I would do the post card and a follow up phone call just to make sure they knew about the change. You could just send something along the lines of:
Due to recent events we are no longer able to hold our reception at Insert Place.
We have found a new location that we hope you will enjoy even more.
The date is still the same (Month/Date/Year) and we hope that you will still be able to make it to celebrate with us!
Sorry that your venue bailled out on you, but maybe that is for the best. If they couldn’t even more tables then who knows what else they “couldn’t ” be able to do! Good luck and have fun!!!

Oh girl! We just changed ours as well after having it set for a year, for very similar reasons (charging $20/champagne bottle to uncork it and $3/guest to cut a piece of cake even if we uncorked the champagne and cut the cake ourselves! And they lied about it when we asked up front about fees). Though we’re not a month and a half out from our wedding like you guys, I know how difficult it is to change venues. I would say send a postcard to all of your guests informing them of the change in venue. Good luck girl! It will all work out!
